Sad news. I didn't know Peter personally, but bought from him many times over the years and he was always a gentleman.

One of the first dealers I bought from in the early 1980s so I would have only been about 14- from memory wasn't he a very tall fella?

RIP and thanks for sharing

Sad news indeed.

I didn't know him personally but had many dealings with him through the years - always good.

RIP Peter.

Really sad to hear the news of Big Pete's passing

Always used to love meeting up with him, always great footie banter

Used to always ask how things were at The Pool

Can I echo what others have said re the sad news of Peter's passing away. Always interested in how your side were doing when speaking at a fair or on the phone.
A pleasure to deal with over the years. RIP.
